There have been an "unprecedented" number of UFO sightings reported in the North Island over the past two months, UFO watchers say.
Any one here on ATS have any new experiences (like you wouldn't have already posted them) but it's good to ask just in case?

And aliens may even have visited Northland in the past five weeks, with one man reporting seeing a UFO land in the region, Suzanne Hansen, director from Ufocus NZ research network said.

She said: "He's a very credible source. He saw an object that had landed and said it was definitely not an aircraft or like anything else he had seen.

"I've got 30 (UFO/UAP) reports on my desk at the moment from the upper North Island and Northland from the past couple of weeks that we're yet to process [on top of the many others] ... It's unprecedented."

I love words like 'unprecedented'.

Mr Gillard said the white and blueish lights were definitely not a helicopter or plane and darted about at speed for several minutes before simply vanishing.

"I've never seen anything like it before, but it definitely wasn't somebody with a torch or vehicles as it was above the skyline, not on the hills," he said.

Inquiries could not find any helicopters or planes operating in the area at that time yesterday morning.

More on this case at link - read up!

"The problem with UFO sightings is that there are a such a huge number of possible explanations for them.

"Something like 80-90 per cent are people mistaking things like Venus for UFOs."

Yep, there's the let down at the end. Always the let down at the end.

Well - it's all good to know anyway!

80-90% really isn't a let down
Some of these sightings remind me of earth lights that could be associated with earth quakes or volcanism

hah! at the very bottom of the page it says

(from the OP's Link) "Something like 80-90 per cent are people mistaking things like Venus for UFOs."

I dont believe that at all... thats very laughable, why would anyone think a something that barley moves is a UFO lol... well it would take a while for it to cross the sky would have to be there all night XD

Thanks for this OP!

I would love to see something in the sky ..I never have, maybe I dont spend enough time looking but it would be cool to see something you cant identify

The venus thing looks like just a brighter star to them, sometimes glowing in different colors. Though, when they see it getting dimmer or disappearing, it usually means a cloud banks goes over it. I can see why they get fooled for being UFO, I don't blame them too. When I saw a video of a stationary, glowing in different shades of color UFO, it turned out to be venus.
